Brooklyn SolarWorks Creates Sleek New Solar Power

When thinking of solar panel technology, one typically envisions clunky roof cladding that detracts from a home’s curbside appeal. Identifying an under-served demographic of homeowners in urban cities – those looking for a modern, design-forward technological solution – Brooklyn SolarWorks has developed a unique Solar Canopy that sets the bar for solar panel technology companies serving the contemporary customer.

A New Landscape in Solar Panel Technology

Created with the modern design lover and environmental champion in mind, Brooklyn SolarWorks’ sleek solar panels sit atop a steel frame raised nine feet above the ground to eliminate the panels from view while still providing a carport or shaded living space below. The Solar Canopy can be adapted and modified to a variety of sizes, heights, and widths and can be mounted on the roof or ground.

While the canopy’s default color is metallic aluminum, it can come in a variety of shades like blue, green, and black – the last being a popular color amongst Brooklyn brownstones. Additional enhancements like garden features are expected to launch in 2019. Read on to see how it breaks down.
